Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for West Valley09/30/2015Given the environment in West Valley, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in West Valley or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern area of North America usually encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle both your cooling and heating needs in one system. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a bit. Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
